Netbalancer is awesome. Sucks that it's limited for the free version, but I still love it.

Sad to see that the bandwidth limiting functionality is gone in the new free version :(

Program has become crippleware

The author of the program has paywalled the "rules". Previously, one could have up to 3 rules set that allowed shaping of traffic. Now it's just a heavyweight traffic monitor.

At first i saw a lot of times some ppl using different apps to connect internet. Like Chrome to use conhost.exe BUT today i saw firefox using chrome.exe for update.. It is silly.

By far the best and it's free!

about NetBalancer and NetLimiter · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I tried everything available for Windows at alternativeTo, and NetBalancer is by far the best, much better than NetLimiter. When the trial ends, the software automatically turns into the free version. The free version is limited to 3 traffic shaping rules, but that's sufficient for most people. I never have more than 3 bandwidth hogs running at the same time.

What I like most is that "it just works". It is updated frequently, so bugs get fixed fast.

issues with delay-sensitive apps

about NetBalancer · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I been using the trial version 7.1.3 build 140221.1650 for a few days and the app doesn't manage the packets well enough for delay-sensitive apps.

Tried setting level severity to 90% with 10x multiplier and the high priority apps still don'T get high priority over low priority apps.
